KYMIRA Base Layers: Beating Back the Chilling Cold

With Winter still gripping us with its full freezing fingers, it remains a great idea to incorporate multiple layers into  your rounds of golf, training or exercise. That is where the KYMIRA Base Layers saunters in, boasting  Thermoregulation, Muscle Elasticity, and Stiffness Reduction as absolute key benefits for your match and training  days.  In this Article:  What the Base Layer does for you? KYMRIA and Thermoregulation  Pumping Up your Muscle Elasticity  Reducing the Stiffness  What the Base Layer does for you? The KYMIRA Base Layers, such as the Infrared Core 2.0 Tops, are what you need. Thin, lightweight material infused with KYnergy technology to keep you warm in the chilling cold as you hit shot after shot in peak condition and  helping make your muscles less stiff, so you get the full potential and absolute maximum distance with your swings.​ Picture this: you arrive at the Golf Course, get your bag with your clubs and the rest of your stuff together, go  toward the course to meet your friends, and the wind whips up. The sun goes in, obscured by a mass of clouds, it’s gotten gloomy, and now you are fully grasped by the Winter cold.  What can you do in that situation, besides layering up in thick jumpers that will restrict your swing and send you  straight to the bottom of the scoreboard?​The best option you can pick for warmth, greater performance, and less stiffness, are the KYMIRA Base Layers. ​ KYMIRA And Thermoregulation? We pride ourselves on our Thermoregulation benefit, thanks to a specialist, unique material that results in the  fabrics warming up quicker and maintains 63% of the warmth in comparison to other sports clothing.   Additionally, after some research on Air Movements, we found that looser fitting clothing worn in lower temperature results in larger heat transfer and therefore greater heat loss during training. That’s simply not what you want in cold-weather Golfing, so KYMIRA performance clothing from the tops to the leggings have a tighter fitting that retains  the heat more efficiently.   One of the primary drivers of heat in the KYMIRA fabric is the circulatory benefits of the infrared. The infrared  technology has been shown to dramatically boost blood flow, which is key to promoting and retaining heat in the  body.  Ultimately, it leads to you feeling much warmer during the gloomy Winter cold and much more prepared for your  shot than someone who simply wears woollen jacket and trousers. Pumping up your Muscle Elasticity As Golf  utilises the entire body during a game, it’s important to feel relaxed, limber, and pumped up as you play.  Of course, a warm-up is key, but KYMIRA Base Layers not only speed up the warmup and efficiently maintains the heat as shown in the previous section but also helps get your muscles feeling elasticated in several ways. Firstly, the Base Layers – like all KYMIRA products have a crucial benefit that allows for the body to increase its production of Nitric Oxide.  This means that as your body produces more Nitric Oxide, your blood flow circulation is increased, resulting in moreOxygen and nutrients pumping around the body and into your muscles, greater waste disposal from the muscles, and reduced swelling.  The Nitric Oxide also causes Skeletal Muscle Tissue Relaxation, meaning that your joints become enhanced as they swing for the fairway and your muscles feel less tight, resulting in less injury occurrence when you try to get your  ball on the green. Secondly, the Base Layers are somewhat flexible. There is nothing worse than when your body is  raring to go, joints and muscles feeling free and pumped, only to then be restricted by how incredibly tight your  clothes feel. Whilst KYMRIA products are fitting, there is still some stretch for you to get the maximum swing  possible. ​ Reducing the Stiffness​As the Cold gets to us, it not only robs us of our warmth and tightens our muscles, but it also greatly affects our joints through vasoconstriction. This process limits the blood flow that goes around our body, and as we discussed this in the previous section regarding muscles, it can also negatively affect our joints.  ​Our connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons have a relatively poor blood supply of their own, receiving most of their blood flow osmotically. This means as a joint is moved, they receive blood thanks to an increase of blood in the general area. Joints also become more susceptible to injury due to being less supple. Therefore, with a restricted blood flow, there is a significant drop off for blood coursing to our joints when golfing or training during Winter.​ But the Base Layer products keep the blood flowing through vasodilation – where the blood vessels expand. This is due to the increased Nitric Oxide production. Essentially resulting Oxygenated and nutrient rich blood being circulated around your joints to keep them supple and limber for your final shot. You can shop for Base Layer products, such as our Merino Top and Recovery Leggings Here.
